This is one of my favorites among the 'evergreen' oils. Young green tips are pruned, and lovingly distilled to yield a truly unusual oil. We love cypress oil. Cypress is a known astringent, excellent for oily skin, and may be useful for circulatory and respiratory problems. It is often used in blends to ease arthritis pain. Can ease the pain of aching muscles or menstrual cramps. Stimulates circulation. Emotionally, Cypress Oil is comforting in case of loss and grief; the traditional oils used to treat grief are Rose and Jasmine.
